During my baptism service in 1973, I felt someone laid a hand on me. I thought it was my pastor praying for me. It took a long time before I realized no one is around praying for me. Later, I realized it is the anointing of the Holy Spirit to set me apart.
I acquired the smoking habit while I wanted to avoid the smell of the toilet as in those days the toilet was not properly equipped. Even though after believing in Jesus,
I did not quit my toilet smoking habits. However after my baptism, as usual I smoked during my toilet visit. I did not know why I was allergic to the cigarette smell. I thought the cigarette was spoiled and tried another 2 packages but had the same result. Thank God, I was released from the bondage of this 10-year old bad habit.
I can do all this through him who gives me strength. Philippian 4:13
